I'm not "going too far" in just trying to determine who this applies to!
I wasn't complaining that they haven't solved IP "problems". I was pointing out that they've made a deal with the devil to get tough, criminal enforcement.
Which organizations? How will Microsoft define "journalist"? Will bloggers qualify? Does the journalist, the publication, and/or the group need to be outside the US?
Will they get a license key and support?
"Whatever the circumstances of the particular cases the New York Times described, we want to be clear that we unequivocally abhor any attempt to leverage intellectual property rights to stifle political advocacy or pursue improper personal gain."
So very naive. Do they think they are getting IP enforcement externalities for free?
